The 67th annual Emmys Red Carpet fashion show did not disappoint and gave viewers of the celebrated awards a runway show before the TV show. A-listers donned their finery with sleek elegance with hair and makeup also refined and simple. There were no clunkers here just pure fashion wow with an air of self assurance and confidence.
There was a big trend for black sleek gowns with Taraji P. Henson wearing a black Alexander Wang (with Neil Lane jewelry), Lady Gaga wore Brandon Maxwell, Emmy winner, Julia Louis Dryfus wore a Safiyaa gown (with Chopard jewels), Amanda Peet, wore a Michael Kors, and many others who were part of the “black is back” club.
Shades of pink was another trend du jour with Christine Baranski in a Zac Posen column dress, Elizabeth Moss in a strapless Oscar de la Renta, and Andy Samberg‘s date, Joanna Newsom wearing a pale pink Delpozo—the Spanish couture brand.
A group of female nominees chose to break the mold with untraditional pant looks like Carrie Brownstein from Portlandia who wore a Stella McCartney tuxedo and black pumps. Jane Lynch and Tatiana Maslany were also in the group of individualists women.
Designer Zac Posen did very well for himself with Chrsitine Baransky proudly wearing a pink column gown and Emmy winner, Amy Schummer, as well as Judith Light and Sarah Hyland among the actresses who donned his sculptural gowns.
The men were equally stylish with Alan Cummings wearing a dandy grey emsemble complete with walking stick by Vivienne Westwood. Big designer names like Giorgio Armani, worn by host, Andy Samberg, and of course Ralph Lauren Black Label, worn by several well suited males, like Liev Schrieber and Hugh Dancy outfitted many of the nominees.
Weather it be an elegant evening gown or a sleek tuxedo, the trend is to keep looks simple and on the traditional side to avoid— as much as possible— the inevitable next day water-cooler critisisms that get splashed on social media. The exception to this rule was Heidi Klum who wore a yellow Atelier Versace “half and half” gown each side a different persoanlity— only she could pull this off. Alan Cummings was the other rebel who chose to go retro-dandy instead of penguin-chic.
